What our delegates are saying
“The presenter, Lane Pederson, used humour and had an ease of conveying information through storytelling and analogies. The techniques I learned built on what I had already been doing in therapy with my clients, and after the seminar I found myself being a more compassionate and competent therapist. The principles of validation taught at the conference have even made a huge difference in my own life! The food and the service at the seminar was also excellent.”
